Flask view raises TypeError: ‘bool’ object is not callable- Stack Overflow

Python PingBook 2 months ago (10-23) 16 0


I am trying to debug a view in my Flask app that is return a 500 status with the error TypeError: ‘bool’ object is not callable in the traceback. The view calls login_user from Flask-Login then returns True to indicate that the login was successful.

I have debugged until app_iter = app(environ, start_response) and the app is now a boolean with the value True rather than the Flask app object.

Traceback (most recent call last):
File “D:\Python27\lib\site-packages\flask\app.py”, line 1836, in __call__
return self.wsgi_app(environ, start_response)
File “D:\Python27\lib\site-packages\flask\app.py”, line 1820, in wsgi_app
response = self.make_response(self.handle_exception(e))

app_iter = app(environ, start_response)
TypeError: ‘bool’ object is not callable

@app.route(‘/login’, methods=[‘POST’])
def login():
username = request.form[‘username’]
user = User.query.filter_by(username=username).first()

if user:
return True

return False


In Flask, a view must return one of the following:

a string
a Response object (or subclass)
a tuple of (string, status, headers) or (string, status)
a valid WSGI application

Flask tests for the first 3 options, and if they don’t fit, assumes it is the fourth. You returned True somewhere, and it is being treated as a WSGI application instead.

See About Responses in the documentation.
